So...
Ayers is allowed to act like a terrorist if he doesn't intend anyone to get hurt?
Ayers can call Obama a war criminal and it is alright with you because it is his opinion?
Hmmm, what is your fascination with this man?
Ayers was charged with a crime. The charges were dropped due to illegal evidence gathering. So he was not allowed.

Setting a bomb is different than voicing an opinion. I realize that concept is way above your pay grade.

I have no fasciation. I only talk about him because you dumbass right whiners keep lying about him & I have to correct you.

Currently the foreign made profits are taxed in the countries where they were made. Then the US corporations owe the US the difference in the foreign rate & the US rate.

We used to get this tax in the year these profits were made.
This was changed to when the profits were repatriated.

Mitt Romney's plan would just make all foreign made profits tax free which would create an exodus of US jobs going overseas.

Republican-Heavy Counties Eat Up Most Food-Stamp Growth

i'll bet most of those counties are all white.
I'll bet you are wrong--look at Texas--all those illegals. Law breakers getting food stamps. Why?
And then Gwinnet county in GA--Today, Gwinnett has large populations of blacks, Hispanics and (perhaps most surprisingly) Asians--you know what happens when these populations take over the area? don't act stupid. Gwinnett County: 91 percent white in 1990; 44 percent white today.
So are illegals counted if they are illegal? just asking.

Apparently, theirs was one of the most stable economies in the world last year.
They are rioting because they were so lucky to get the Olympics--and now they are so lucky to be paying out of their own pocket for the Olympics. Thank G-d the O'bama failed in his attempt to bring the Olympics to Chicago or the same would be happening there.

Are you saying you are in favor of the United States to get involved in a civil war in Syria? There is no such thing as a quick end to suffering; what would you suggest? Bombing them to smithereens? There are over a half million refugees in Lebanon from Syria; let the other Arab nations feed them. Russia, Iran and China are backing the President. Let them figure it out.
I didn't say that. You did.

It just seems the civilized world is watching these horrors unfold and wringing their hands.

Same in Rwanda and Darfur. I don't understand why something more can't be done by the collective global community when these kinds of atrocities occur. I wish someone were smart enough to know.

That's what I said.

Even the atrocities commited in the gulags in North Korea, the civilized world looks the other way without even so much as shining a continual spotlight on it and condemning it.

We can't even get our heads around the human atrocities taking place in North Korea. Political and cultural demographics is a good excuse, but the civilized world is just too disinterested to care.

That bothers me greatly.

Exactly. These rightwingers on here just can't comprehend that there is a far left segment of the population that will always be against everything. Any president has to lead from the center to survive, it's not a dictatorship.
Yes, the Progressives who has a strangle hold on the Dems.

Media Matters, Move On, Think Progress, Talking Points Memo, et al are partisan Progressive sites that are quoted frequently from by the LEFT here.

How can US corporations compete overseas if they are required to pay higher tax rates than foreign companies operating in the same country?

Do we want to live in a world where a 17 year old boy can not safely walk home due to a self-appointed vigilante overzealous neighborhood watch trigger happy male is driving around, looking for a target?
Jorge Z. says it was God's will. Some say his gun jammed or there would have been more shots. Some say they heard a sound like he cocked his weapon.
Judge is going to allow the word "profiling" and so it goes.
Most people are tired living in a world where 17 year old thug boys are shooting innocent people which occurs before or after they rob them. Everyone has seen the picture of the boy with his gun and his gang banging tattoos and what kind of boy gets thrown out of school for drugs? O'bamason. I predict the woman from Chicago will hang this jury out to dry.

Republicans controlled Congress for 6 of the Clinton years plus many of the Bush years.

The only attempt they made was when Bush tried a power grab to put F & F oversight under White House control. Even Republicans voted no.

F & F were participants in the sub prime mortgage fiasco but they were not the creator of the sub prime mortgagenor the cause of the collapse.

2007 was te first time since 1993 that Democrats controlled both houses.

So in the decade preceding 2006, Republicans basically controlled Congress.

I sat across from him when he said he was the only person in America who openly proclaims he is a communist. He also stated he wrote O'bama's book Dreams from my Father--but the second O'bama book was done by some political hack.
I did however cringe when Bernadine Dorn was asked 'why go after the La Bianca's' during apple pie. Of course her hands starting flailing and poppy hair got up after no answer.
